Incoming: New Dwight Twilley Album

 

CD synched to a
Twilley documentary.

 

By Blurt Staff

 

Dwight Twilley – best known for his iconic hits through the
decades like “I’m On Fire” (1975), “Girls” (1984) and the classic ballad “Why
You Wanna Break My Heart” featured in the motion picture Wayne’s World (1992) – has a new studio album Soundtrack, arriving October 4th on Varese Sarabande.

 

Twilley signed on to write and produce the disc to accompany
a film documentary about his life, which is now in production. “Creating this
album was a real challenge for me. Something I’ve never attempted. It’s
completely autobiographical. For me these songs are like musical photographs of
the people, places and events that tell my story.” Soundtrack is not an album with all
the best cuts jammed at the beginning, but rather plays like a book that urges
you to read from start to finish.

 

The new album marks a bittersweet milestone of the end of a
more than 30-year collaboration between Twilley and legendary guitarist Bill
Pitcock IV, who made a significant contribution to the album. Pitcock passed
away
near the completion of the recording. 

 

Special guests on the album include Susan Cowsill (The
Cowsills) who contributed her typically amazing harmonies on “Bus Ticket,” “God
Didn’t Do It” and “The Cards Will Fall,” and fellow Tulsan Taylor Hanson
(Hanson) who adds organ and magical keyboard sprinkles to “The Cards Will Fall”
and “The Last Time Around.”
